Monique Richardson

PA monique@settledownphiladelphia.com 267-977-6614

I’m Monique, born and raised in Philadelphia, though I’ve lived as far away as Korea while in the military. I loved experiencing the food and culture, but Philly cheesesteaks will always hold a special place in my heart (and I missed them!).

Now I’m back home in Philadelphia with my 5 kids, my PA Real Estate license, and a go getter attitude that drives me to keep on going until my clients are home too.
I believe in our city of neighborhoods here in Philadelphia and volunteer at my neighborhood community group. That’s one of the reasons I chose Settle Down Philadelphia as my brokerage – a portion of every commission we earn goes right back to support the community.
Real estate can be tough, but I have nerves of steel from years or working in customer service. No matter what it takes to get you through a successful real estate transaction, I keep my cool and get the job done.
Don’t let my always perfect lipstick fool you. I’m sweet as sugar on the outside – but tough as nails when it comes to working for my clients.
Ready to move?  Let’s do this.

A force to be reckoned with, I am a phenomenal woman. I am not just a licensed realtor; I’m  a mother of 4 grown sons and a doting grandmother to a little grandson. Can you believe it? Talk about a powerhouse!
But wait, there’s more! I am a proud Army veteran, and that’s not all –and a fierce member, advocate, and ally of the LGBTQ+ community, a true champion of love and equality.
For over 20 years, I’ve dedicated my life to the medical field, always with a heart to help others. But even superheroes need a break, right? So, I decided to switch gears, still with that burning desire to make a difference. That’s when real estate caught my eye.
Now, entering the real estate world isn’t a walk in the park, let me tell you. But I, being the tenacious force that I am, connected with the incredible Janis Benstock. It took me a solid year to get that real estate license, but guess what? I nailed it! And now, here I stand, making waves in the real estate game.
I dream big, let me tell you. One day, I envision having her very own real estate development firm. Drexel University is my sights to acquire the knowledge for that task. I will be starting soon. Talk about reaching for the stars! In the meantime, I’m out there, hustling, huffing, and puffing, getting those deals done one key at a time. It’s a journey, and I am leading the way with heart, determination, and a whole lot of fabulousness.
So, keep an eye out for me – the real estate WOLF with a heart of gold, but really sharp fangs and claws. You never know what I’ll conquer next!
